The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report for the route of the Nord Stream 2 AG natural gas offshore pipeline to the south-east of Bornholm has been made available for public display by the coordinating authority, the Danish Energy Agency (DEA). This route passes outside Danish territorial waters and stretches within the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of Denmark.
The EIA is based on detailed environmental research conducted along the pipeline route where the pipeline is planned to be constructed. The comprehensive report describes the main characteristics and technical solutions of the planned pipeline system, as well as detailed assessments of potential impacts on the physio-chemical, biological and socio-economic environment in the Danish sector. The EIA also includes an assessment of potential transboundary impacts which may arise from activities to be carried out in Denmark, and identifies measures to prevent and mitigate potential adverse environmental impacts.
The public, Danish authorities and organisations are invited to provide comments or raise their questionson the filed EIA report to the DEA until 10 July. This deadline is extended to 17 July for the transboundary consultation under the Espoo Convention. A hearing organised by the DEA, where interested parties can raise their questions, will be held in Rønne on Bornholm on 19 June.
